Default [DEV] Samsung Galaxy W/Samsung Exhibit 2 4G Development

Okay so that we have a development topic (due to lack of a forum) for both phones which are basically the same.

What's going on the Galaxy W side:
Arco68 is porting CM9 to the phone
KezraPlanes is trying to port CM7 to the phone and making a custom stock ROM.

What's going on the Exhibit 2 side:
**placeholder text**

Try to keep general discussion to this topic I will post:

This will be a development topic.

So I was finally able to solve my issues with downloading the CM7 sources. Apparently it was in issue with the manifest.xml file which can be easily solved by doing this:

Add this in the beginning of the file where all the other equal references are:

Quote:
<remote name="github-https"
fetch="https://github.com/"
review="review.cyanogenmod.com" />
And replace the original line near the end of the file with this:

Quote:
<project path="prebuilt" name="CyanogenMod/android_prebuilt" remote="github-https" />
This fixes the download sources issue.

I'm not sure what issue you are referring to or what file ?

I have trouble with their instruction on the "building kernel from sources page"

repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b gingerbread
repo sync -j8

is not working for me.

Do you suggest to modify the repo file or is that another procedure you are talking about ?

dswaggz was referring to this thread for the Exhibit 2.

My Galaxy W should arrive any day now (*impatient*) and I have an Exhibit 2. I think it'll be easy to cooperate on developing for both phones. I don't see anything in your first post about what's already working. (The phone is rooted, but beyond that, if you have any updates I'll look at post #1 )

Is it ok to PM you?

Depending on what error you are getting, it might work for you. It solved everything for me but I was using "repo sync -j16" (I was also following one tutorial from their wiki).

In my case the error made me unable to download the sources past 93%

Hi Guys,

Just have the phone for a week now, and i gotta say i really like this phone!
Had a LG Optimus Me before, but the Galaxy Wonder is so much more and better.

Hope there will be a CM 7 or 9 very soon.
Good luck with developping!

I was going to release a deodexed-rooted-arcokernel'd stock ROM today because I've figured out how to do it while helping Arco68 with ICS, but unfortunately the laptop I'm using right now (which is not the computer I use for dev'ing) corrupts the ROM everytime I build it.

I might bring back to my hometown (where I spend my weekends) my broken-screen laptop, connect it via HDMI to the TV in the living room and create the ROM there, since I have to go to my rented apartment to get some stuff anyway.

I'm aiming at a release tomorrow at the most.

Edit: I'm a ****ing idiot. I'm guessing it's going to work now,
